Back in time

When you look back in time of all the different methods of hair removal, it's pretty clear that people have been trying to get rid of unwanted hair ever since they've had it.

Women in many parts of the world were soon expected to keep their legs and under arms hair free, and when the swimming costume came around, so did the expectation of a well maintained bikini line. These days, hair removal is generally viewed as a need to get rid of that hairy back or fury upper lip.

Abrasives, or the friction method, like dull stones or pumices were used to remove unwanted hair. Rubbing the glove on the problem area in a circular motion would remove fine hair and also exfoliate your skin in the process.

Threading was another ancient hair removal technique that is still quite popular today. It involves pulling the hair out by the root using a piece of thread, and is typically used for shaping eyebrows. This method is said to be less painful than plucking and very effective.

Sugaring first came onto the hair removal scene in ancient Egypt. It's like waxing where a warm paste is applied to the skin, and then removed with a strip. The soft, sugar-based paste only sticks to the hair and not the skin, which makes it less painful.

Electrolysis is a technique that uses a thin metal needle to get to the base of the hair follicle, and then zapped with an electric current. This effectively burns the hair follicle and prevents future hair growth, if performed correctly.

Laser Hair Removal is the new way to reduce your unwanted hair up to 70%-90%. It's longer lasting, hassle free and the best way to rid those dark and annoying hairs.
